I don't mean to hijack your thread, but I wonder if maintaining two
separate build systems is the best approach in the long term. I think
CMake[1] is an interesting alternative: it would allow us to generate
both makefiles and MSVC .proj's from a single set of master build files.



I would be more than happy if we had a single build system. Maybe some enterprising person would like to try to create such a system as a proof of concept. I count around 200 makefiles in our sources ;-)

Of course, we'd need to know that cmake was pretty universally available too.
